Gee Heidi, ur onc watches ur weight, that’s good encouragement! I’m on my fifth onc and not one has brought it up with me. I actually had a registrar tell me after chemo put me into menopause then post menopause in a matter of months, that I wouldn’t be able to lose it now, can u believe it??? That’s how I started low carb. I commented to my current onc that I was fat and she said I was too hard on myself! Encouragement from her to lose would be more helpful.
Well I’ve lost another 2 kg (BMI 31.5) and the 30 day challenge finishes tomorrow. I’ve had alcohol once. I feel exactly the same level of pain (advanced arthritis in feet and ankles) and physical discomfort (fat tummy in the way, hot flashes/sweating, joint stiffness) which I’m disappointed about. I guess anther 4.5kg might make a difference? It’s Easter and I made low carb Rocky Road which is acceptable to eat. But I bought my parents an egg/rabbit each for tomorrow, Mum’s is Turkish Delight - and actually bigger than I intended, couldn’t find a smaller one - and I’m worried I may succumb 🙁. But I’ve avoided the hot cross buns I’m pleased to say 😄. Congratulations to all the losers and levellers, enjoy Easter all, it’s only once a year, lol.
